Scammer: ShoeMoney - Jeremy Shoemaker - cheats already for US$1, what will happen with higher sums?

by Rudolf Faix 20. August 2015 10:29

ShowMoneyShoeMoney needed 10 days for answering a complaint that their software has a bug and their Facebook share detection and their promised payout is not working. Their answer shows that they are not interested in it. We know that scammer are lazy for this they are inventing some advertisements with promises of high earnings for selling you something useless. They are even not interested in fulfilling their misleading promotions. For this they lie all the time.

I can only recommend to everybody: Don't trust any advertisement. If someone promises you something than don't continue to spend some money before you got the promises fulfilled.

The fraud of the advertisement is already planned in the system. I don't know any other reason why they lie already in their support answer. I have no reason to sign-up many times at their system. I have seen already enough by the one time I signed up for writing my report found at "ShoeMoney - Jeremy Shoemaker: misleading promotion for getting access to Paypal accounts?". The answer from Amanda Hutch from confirms only the fraud in their system. If I would have more accounts at their site, then they needed to have paid at least the first time, but my Paypal account received during the last 3 years only the payments from Uento!

This shows the poor situation of the affiliate/MLM marketing. This market is already down and some people are trying with unbelievable advertisings to find a few stupid people, which are believing into their promotion. The same gets found here at ShoeMoney. To promote their own system they are promising you the heaven on earth but they are even not able to fulfill their US$1 promise for a Facebook and/or Twittershare. I think that the Facebook share detection is working, but they even like to get more promotion for their US$1. I'll recomment everybody to delete the sharing from ShoeMoney from your timeline and Twitter pages.

The misleading promotion from the ShoeMoney website:

They like to sell you only some hosting and systems as we can read at my previous report about ShoeMoney. With this action they have destroyed the little bit of their reputation they had until now. My opinion is that they are nothing else than fraudster and scammer. I don't believe them anything what is coming from their site!

The email from ShoeMoney:

ShoeMoney Network <>

Good afternoon.

The reason you have not received your rewards in your account is because I show you have multiple accounts with the network.

This is against our Terms of Service to have two accounts.

Fraud & Scam

WHAFF - fake and misleading promotion

by Rudolf Faix 17. August 2015 12:08

WHAFFA Facebook advertisement of the scammer Jason White brought the app WHAFF into my focus. Everything what seems to good to be true is not true. The promotion for WHAFF is free invented: 

Jason White
August 15 at 8:50pm

Instant $10 in your paypal account
No investment just follow below details
Download WHAFF Rewards.
Earn Real Money by Android mobile
You can spend 1 hour daily.Daily Earn $20 - $40
Download Whaff Reward App from Play store
Click Here

1. After install, log in with facebook
Wait for few second automatically open a dialog box and Enter the code.
2. Enter Code AY19070 ( We both earn $10 )
3. Download and get the all reward $
4. Exchange $ to PayPal, Google Gift card or any other

Don't worry friends see the payment proof also

Guys Try it and see within one months you will be able to earn $500-$1000

Instead of earning $10 for signing up, you get $0.30. Instead of earning $20 - $40 per day, you need to be happy if you are earning $0.20 per day. You need only take a look at the offers in WHAFF and you'll get it that even $0.20 will be a high earning. An earning from your referrals is not foreseen like we can see on the following screen-shot:
WHAFF invite screen

Even the attached payment proof is a fake. At the payment proof we can see a payment of $10, but WHAFF does not pay $10 - the minimum payment is in every case higher:
WHAFF payout screen

While others are paying within a few minutes WHAFF hopes that they are able to find during three days a reason to decline the payment. That does not make them to a trustful company. Additional are they hiding their domain registration behind a privacy protection service:

If you visit their website and click at "SignIn" or "SignUp" then you get the message "The page says: Comming Soon". It looks for me as the domain got registered January 2011 that this menu entry is comming soon since more than 4.5 years and did not arrive until now.

All the above facts are making the promotion (app description) of WHAFF in the Google Playstore to a bad joke:

TrafficAuthority - INFINITE LEVERAGE: the scam is hidden in the videos

by Rudolf Faix 12. August 2015 12:20

TrafficAuthorityAffiliate marketers how stupid are you really? I have seen that there need only someone publish a few time waster videos and promise a unbelievable income and nobody takes a look at the conditions, which are getting found at different places insde the videos.

In the case of TrafficAuthority have a lot of people signed-up during the prelaunch time and started to make promotions for them. I like to know how many of these stupid ones will pay the US$20 license fee per month (found at the marketing plan video at position 4 min 52 sec) and at least a traffic package for US$ 220? I think that 98% from them even don't know the conditions to get paid

Take a look at the conditions, which I have collected from the videos. You'll see that you have to qualify for selling the products and you have to pay a license fee. After launch you have exactly 72 hours time to qualify or your referrals are getting another sponsor. Are you really so stupid that you pay into a system where you even don't know which kind of traffic and/or clicks you'll get? You only know that the traffic is coming from USA and Canada, but you'll not know the kind of the traffic. If it is the same quality like from TrafficMonsoon and similar offers then you are only trashing money. Such a traffic will not increase your sales!

Video Company Lauch Plan:

Time Content
02:01 Our pre-launch system has been designed to give your new Traffic Authority business a Fast Start with serious upfront money on launch day
04:27 You'll be able to get traffic for your business for FREE... Apply some of your Traffic Authority earnings to your personal traffic packages.
07:04 Your cost for all of the Traffic Optimizer tools is just $27 per month.../ $20 commission
08:55 Traffic Academy $97/month $50 commission
14:25 If you haven't upgraded within the 72 hour period... Any sales and commissions that would have gone to you will unfortunately be paid out to the next qualified sponsor permanently.

Video Compensation Plan:

Time Content
06:53 you get paid as long as you are an active Traffic Authority member
07:15 The first 6 sales on each product type are split 50/50 between you and your sponsor
07:37 After your first 6 sales on each product, the split changes from 50/50 to 80/20
08:03 If you are not qualified to earn on a product, but still make the sale, That sale will be sent to your sponsor until you're qualified to earn commissions on that product.

You can get qualified to earn commissions in 2 different ways:
  1. First, you can purchase the product you want to earn commissions on
    As soon as you make the purchase, you'll be instantly qualified to sell that product and earn commissions on it

  2. Or you can sell 3 of the products you want to earn commissions on.
    When you do that, you'll be passing up 3 commissions to your sponsor, which are sales you will lose forever, but then you'll earn commissions on that product after that.
14:50 The total commission that's paid on the $1,097 Gold package is $500
15:40 The total commission that's paid out on the $4,297 Titanium package is $2,000
17:00 The total commission that's paid out on the $8,397 Diamond package is $4,000
21:03 When they're buying traffic packages to qualify to earn commissions...


Video Marketing Plan:

Time Content
03:47 If you miss out on that, if that 72 hour door closes without you securing your position
The members you signed up during the Pre-Launch are going to pass on the next qualified sponsor
and you WON'T getting any commissions from their purchases OR their downlines' purchases.
04:52 You'll need to purchase the official Reseller License for $20 per month
05:59 The cheapest traffic package is $220 pays $100 commissions
07:02 Bonuses that will qualify you to sell our highest paying traffic packages without having to pay full price!

My opinion is that you'll get traffic with a higher quality for a lower price if you are using Google adwords.

TrafficMonsoon: the way how to earn without spending money

by Rudolf Faix 11. August 2015 03:42

not recommendedIf you signing up at TrafficMonsoon and take a look at the dashboard you see a lot of links where you need to spend money. You even not see that there is a way how you can earn without spending money. You see the buy menu entries at the following screen shot - don't let yourself get impressed from this - the reality is even worse, because they are betraying you with their program. So for example you'll get after watching an advertisement and after entering the captcha the message "Sorry Ad Expired" only for the reason to show you the same advertisement a second time. You can also get logged out automatically from the system after entering the captcha and in this case all your remaining advertisements disappeared after your login. This happens only during high paying advertisements ($0.01 advertisements). Additional are they from time to time using wrong captchas. You enter the right captcha but the system says you have entered it wrong. These errors are not done by a failure of the programmer - these errors are done by command of the owner from trafficmonsoon. So stupid is even not one programmer, which makes his first job!

Let us take first a look at the membership area:

TrafficMonsoon membership site

For getting qualified to earn from referrals and cash-links for the next 24 hours you have to follow the link provided in the middle of the page where it is written:

To Receive Referral Click ********From Cash Links & Share In Site Revenues You Must Be Qualified
You're Qualified For Clicking 10 Ads Until : xx yyy zzzz aa:bb cc Start Surfing

If you are viewing 10 advertisings within 24 hours you keep qualified to get your referral bonus and cash links. For viewing the 10 advertisements as a free member you'll get 5 views for your own advertisements. For the case you need such a traffic. It is not mandatory to enter an own site link into your profile.

As soon cash links are available for you, they are shown in a separate link:

TrafficMonsson Cash Links

You'll get every day some cash-links where you can earn around $0.10. That is not much, but if you have a few referrals, which are doing the same you can earn a little bit every day. At the promotion from TrafficMonsoon is written that you'll get $0.10 from your active referrals every day (

More referrals will be more money for you.

10 referrals X $0.10 earnings from cash links X 30 days = $30 from your referral clicks
10 referrals X $0.10 earnings from cash links X 365 days = $365 from your referral clicks
500 referrals X $0.10 earnings from cash links X 30 days = $1,500 from your referral clicks
500 referrals X $0.10 earnings from cash links X 365 days = $18,250 from your referral clicks
1000 referrals X $0.10 earnings from cash links X 30 days = $3,000 from your referral clicks
1000 referrals X $0.10 earnings from cash links X 365 days = $36,500 from your referral clicks

Make a more realistic calculation: 100 referrals * $0.10 earnings from cash links = $10 per day * 30 days = $300 per month for around 20 minutes daily work and a heap of troubles with errors at their website. The work is to confirm the captchas for the 10 advertisements to keep yourself qualified and to confirm with captcha around 15 - 20 advertisements (cash links). Each advertisement gets displayed between 10 and 30 seconds before the captcha can get entered. If you are lucky then the captcha is working. The most time you'll get the error message that the adversisement has expired. All these troubles will lead that you'll lose all your friends and referrals. The next time you'll invite them for some earnings they will not follow for signing up with you.

Share Up To 110 % - 10% Affiliate Program

There is no need to buy something to earn with TrafficMonsoon. Would this possibility not be available then would be the whole business model nothing else than an illegal Ponzi scheme.

BitGold confirms that they are offering services which they are not able to fulfill

by Rudolf Faix 1. August 2015 06:52

gold barsBitGold support is confirming in their email that not one of their team is speaking German, but on their own site they are offering a German speaking support and they have a website in German too. Already this is a misleading promotion. How will they answer such a call? I think it will not take a long time if they are getting fined from the competition bureau of the European Union for their misleading marketing practice.

Lets start from the beginning. I have sent them a request for canceling my membership:


Please delete my account. The German translation is not understandable - it
is nothing than plain shit what is written there. Changing to English
resulted in the for me not understandable language Svenska. As your
business seems to be in reality from Eastern Europe or India, which is
hosting their services at the Amazon cloud and even have no own servers and
security systems is your company not trustful. Not one bank in Europe is
using a public hosting provider for their own services.

Additional I signed up by a misleading promotion, which did not get

best regards
Rudolf Faix

Instead of disabling my account immeditely I got the following response:

Ben replied:

We regret to hear of your intentions to cancel your account. We can certainly fulfill your request, but before we do so, can you please answer the following three questions:

1. Did you find BitGold’s TOS policy to be fair and equitable?

2. What are your views on BitGold’s gold prices?

3. Why are you closing your BitGold Act.?

We hope you reconsider using the platform in the future.

My answer has been a link to my previous article about BitGold:

Hi Ben

There are a lot of reasons why I cancel my account directly after signing
up. You can find a few of them at:

That has been only the first impression. What will I find all if I'm
starting making a real background check?

best regards

In their following answer we see that they know about the problems of the translation from their own site. The question is only why they not solve this problems? They are only writing that they are working on it - until now they even did not change something and it takes only a few hours to fix the translation. Do they not have enough money? It is their own reputation which gets destroyed if they let the content online. We find the same money saving action in their referral program confirmed in their email:

Hi Rudolf,

We are sorry to hear you had a bad experience. I’d like to address some of the concerns you brought up in your article to provide better clarification. Firstly, we are very sorry about the translation issue. We are based in Toronto, Canada, and no one on our team speaks German. I will be completely honest – we had contracted the translation out to a translation company in Europe and have since heard (especially for the German version of the site) that a lot of it does not make sense. We are currently in the process of having this corrected and apologize for any inconvenience or confusion this may have caused.

Our Golden Heart referral program and affiliate program are not lotteries, as your article suggested. The amounts are different in each region based on the usage we are seeing from each country, so that is why we advise users that their reward may vary. We cannot control how users advertise the program on social media, but the affiliates Facebook page (“BitGold Affiliate Program”) and your personal Golden Heart referral page are the best sources on information about each promotion.

If we can provide more information for you, we would be happy to do so. If you would still like to delete your account, we can also do that for you.

Kind regards,


VP of Customer Success
BitGold Inc.
Phone: (647) 977 9004 | Fax: (647) 499 4435 | Toll-free 1800 854 7418 | 

The above email shows that BitGold even does not understand their self-induced problems. It shows that they are working according to the motto: "We're saving - cost what it may". My answer to this email has been accordingly:

How you can say that your referral program is not a lottery?
In my case is it already a lottery at which place I'm at the moment or which address I use for signing up. I have a company in New York, Vienna/Austria and in Manila/Philippines. Depending on which place I'm or signing up I get a different handling.
I even cannot promote your system because of your different promises. My market is the German and English speaking part of the world. I'm not able to offer something from your company without getting called to be scammer or liar from one or more parts of the world.
Do you see now the problem?
As your company is not able to understand international marketing you are proving that you even not understand something from your own business. Who shall trust you in this case if you fail already during your marketing process?
Sorry, but my own reputation is more important than your first steps in learning how an international marketing is working.
Don't forget if you are reaching the wrong people like me and there are a lot of them available at the world, than a handful of these people can be your ruin. In such a case the best promotion will not help you.
That you cannot control how people are advertising your system in the social media is true, but it has been your decision to let people advertise your service and you have to accept the result. It is your reputation which is going down together with the advertisers reputation. With other words is it for you not an excuse because you have started it and this without thinking about the consequences. Even this shows that you have no experienced people in your company. Maybe all of your staff is coming directly from the school or you are saving money by hiring under graduated ones.
As you have confirmed that not one at your company is speaking German, how do you handle callers at your support hotline if I'm calling the German support with the number +49-69-204575283, which is only an extension?

Summary: As I have described at the article "BitGold Inc. - very suspicious - will they burst like a bubble?" confirms the email from BitGold that everything at their systems is quick, cheap and dirty. The same methods we find in their support as they are offering something which they are not able to fulfill. Not one of their systems, which is visible from outsiders, is working on a serious way. What are you expecting in this case how they are handling your money? Maybe if you are customer from them you'll get an email once which tells you that during a programming mistake all your funds got lost, but BitGold is not guilty. Guilty is the external programming company.

My opinion is that a company, which is offering payment and investment services needs to make in each case a very serious impression otherwise they will not survive. Some people are so modest - they even don't accept reason.

It looks for me that they are struggling with money because they are even not fixing their small problems. How long will it take in such a case that they would use customer funds for solving their problems? We have in German language a proverb which is translated into English: "Opportunity makes the thief."
